Brendan Shanahan has taken his new role as the NHL's school principal extremely seriously. He's already handed out over a half dozen detentions and suspensions in the preseason. The first half of the video acts as a "how to" delicately bump into your opponent.

Shanny then delivers a little diatribe acknowledging the hockey elitists who have complained about the NHL getting soft. He isn't trying to stop the kids from having their fun, but he wants to keep it to names on the chalkboard with check marks as opposed to detentions and extra homework.

At last he gets to hits that most fans want to see.

All in all, it's a good move by Shanahan. He knows that his hitting ability was a major strength and it shouldn't be taken out of the sport. But at the same time, he wants his kids to play nice.
